Wow? Bah, there are several similar things already in Java and at least
one commercial project that compiles down multiple languages.
And this isn't even a compiler anyway, it's an AWT for the web - which
is damn interesting but nothing like what you seem to be talking about.
And of course almost certainly unbrandable as all hell - although at
least probably better than ASP.Net.
If this is "wow", get out from under your rock and use the main bit of
google to go find the already-extant alternatives :)
